Hi gebe. Babesiosis is caused by a protozoa and is similar to malaria. It needs to be treated with a combination anti-malarial (often Mepon) and antibiotic (Zithromax, Biaxin, or Ketek). I had a severe case of it, but I have finally eradicated it. I would be happy to answer your questions, if I can. I have not read this doctor's book on Babesiosis.

From what I understand, a spinal tap shows Lyme in less than 5% of cases. Is this test being done solely to test for Lyme?

Unfortunately, many doctors are ignorant about tick-borne illnesses.

It is important to learn as much as possible. I recommend reading Dr. Joseph Burrascano's 2005 Diagnostic Hints and Treatment Guidelines For Lyme and Other Tick Borne Illnesses. He is one of the top Lyme doctors in the states, and many Lyme doctors follow his protocols. I also recommend the book "Everything You Need To Know About Lyme Disease (2nd edition)" by Karen Vanderhoof-Forschner.

Keep us posted on your progress okay?
